April

27 Style 1900: An Enduring Legacy, A Conversation with David Rago - In marking the 30th Anniversary of the launch of Style 1900, David Rago, the magazine’s founder and founder of the Rago Arts and Auction Center, will join Mark Weaver, former writer for the magazine and current Stickley Museum Trustee, for a conversation exploring Style 1900’s history. From its beginnings as the black-and-white newsletter Arts and Crafts Quarterly, to its evolution into the full-color magazine Style 1900 and eventual decline, the magazine, like Gustav Stickley’s magazine The Craftsman, established itself as a guide to living and learning about the Arts and Crafts lifestyle. Join The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms in remembering Style 1900 magazine and its enduring legacy.

May

1 - 31 Early Newcomb Pottery from the Barbara and Henry Fuldner Collection - This exhibition features a private collection of approximately 30 examples of early Newcomb Pottery within the dining room of the Log House—Gustav Stickley’s own home, which he not only designed, but also built and lived in from 1910-1917. The exhibition highlights the work of a dozen different designers from Newcomb Pottery, which was founded in 1895 as part of the H. Sophie Newcomb Memorial College, the women’s coordinate of Tulane University in New Orleans. While Newcomb Pottery embodies its southern origin—decorators were encouraged to draw inspiration from their immediate surroundings—the designs demonstrate a thorough understanding of contemporary design reform principles such as conventionalized, repetitive motifs based on nature. This exhibition will complement the nearby Princeton University Art Museum exhibition Women, Art, and Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise (May 7 to July 10, 2016).
The exhibition will be on view during all tours of the Log House, which depart Thursday-Sunday at 12:15, 1:15, 2:15, and 3:15, and Special Interest Tours will provide an opportunity for in-depth exploration of the exhibition.
